Then: An Adorable Puppy
The Doc says he will weigh almost as much as Sparky, but will be a little height challenged. He is still not very tall, but his back is so long he can get on top of the counters if he feels it is necessary.
Our older lab Elvis will let her do just about anything. Often he will be playing with a toy, minding his own business, when she will drop by him and start licking the toy and just generally acting silly until he finally gives up the toy to her.
Josie is doing very well in her obedience class. We had taken her to obedience training when we first got her but due to a variety of circumstances, the class didn't work out. We figured now that she is obviously comfortable with us and knows she's found her forever home, it would be a good time to fine-tune some of her manners. She has 'sit-stay" down pat and is well on the way to mastering "stand-stay" unfortunately her "down-stay" is still a work in progress. It could be that more often than not she is in "play mode" and going into the down position just doesn't seem like a lot of fun to her. :-)
I cannot tell you how "right" Emmy (now called Remmy) is! She is a sweet, smart, obedient girl! We love her and cannot believe how beautifully she fits in with our family.
Last week we took her with us to a pet freindly cabin at Whitewater Memorial State Park. (She was the best behaved dog there.) She loves the water, but is not a very smooth swimmer. Next spring I will probably get her a life jacket because she keeps trying to go in over her head, then wants back in where she can stand. ;)
Thank you and every one at LOLIN for the work you do!

The love of a lady is "love beyond words". My name is Lady as some of you might remember from before I was adopted about 3 years ago. I can not tell you how happy I am to have found my forever home. I know I am lavishly loved and adored by my family and the feelings are mutual. I love life to the fullest and all the special people I encounter daily. After being adopted, mom and I worked to become a "Certified Therapy Dog" team. We visit the library every week and have logged almost 90 visits since being certified. As you can see in my pictures, I also love being outside! Thank you Love of Labs for giving me a second chance at life!
She loves her new Air Kong which is the only thing she will play with when we are in the back yard. She also loves all the new toys the pets of my office sent her to welcome her home. And every morning she wakes me with her nose touching my face and a quick kiss to let me know she is ready to get up and go outside.
I just want to thank LOLIN for helping me find Gibby. I could not have asked for a better match than what I found with Gibby. I lost my last lab to a long time illness and age and Gibby was the perfect friend to help me heal from the loss of my dear Jasmine and to fill my heart again.
Again, Thank you LOLIN!

Unfortunately late in the summer, her back hips started failing. We worked closely with our vet to exhaust every avenue of treatment for Daisy. Our vet finally said we had done everything we could and that there was no magic cure for Daisy. Since that time we have had a hole in our family. We didn't have Daisy long but she surely enriched our lives.
I would encourage everyone to think about adopting seniors. Yes you do not have them as long, but they make wonderful additions to a family.
Miss Daisy...we miss you!
